Does anyone know if the RS Tora 302 UTurn has compression adjust? The descriptions didn't seem to specifically say whether or not they did. I would assume they do for being a 200$ some odd dollar fork.
It doesn't. According to the site, the 302 only has adjustable rebound, located on the bottom of the right side stanchion. The motion control feature encompasses the adjustable compression and lockout in the Tora series. If you can get the Tora 318, that will have adjustable compression with a lockout setting in addition to the adjustable rebound. A Tora 318 came with my Rockhopper. It's a great, sturdy fork and is much more versatile due to the adjustable compression.
I should have made it more clear. I have the Solo Air version, not the U-turn. But yes, the knob that you get with Motion Control on the 318 sets the compression from soft to rock hard, and at the extreme of the hard setting, activates the lockout. I haven't tested it out on any tough trails yet because of winter, but it certainly looks strong enough. I think that it's a great shock for the price because of that adjustability. The lockout is good for the hills. If you can get together a bit more money, I would suggest going with the 318 because it truly offers a lot more. It keeps the upgrade bug away for a little while longer.
